2. Con­struc­tion boom in Car­bon­ear

The Compass - - FRONT PAGE -

A mas­sive in­vest­ment into health and ed­u­ca­tion in­fra­struc­ture in Car­bon­ear was poised to change the land­scape of the Con­cep­tion Bay North town.

The provin­cial govern­ment con­firmed it would spend roughly $108 mil­lion on a new 250-bed long-term care fa­cil­ity, which will be lo­cated just west of Car­bon­ear Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal. And con­struc­tion has also started on a new school to re­place Davis Ele­men­tary. That project will cost roughly $16 mil­lion.

The long-term care fa­cil­ity is sched­uled to be com­pleted by late 2014, while the school is ex­pected to be ready be­fore the end of 2013.

This artist’s ren­der­ing of the new long-term care fa­cil­ity gives an aerial view of what the new fa­cil­ity will look like in re­la­tion to the Car­bon­ear Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal at left.
